Limited Capacity seats available

IMPORTANT NOTE! Capacity for this session is limited. To reserve a spot, select the “Add To My Sched” button. If the session is already fully booked, you can add yourself to the waiting list by selecting the same button. 

ALSO VERY IMPORTANT! Due to high demand for this workshop, a second session will take place right after the first one, to allow 20 extra attendees to participate (thank you Christos for doing this!). So the first 20 people who signed up will do the workshop from 11:30 to 12:30, the following 20 from 12:45 to 13:45. If you made it into the second group you should have received an email (just check if you're listed in the attendees for this workshop if you're in doubt) – please show up at 12:30 to check in and confirm you presence. If you're on the waiting list, you can still show up at 11:30 and 12:30 to see if there's any last minute slot available. If you have any questions, please got to Ambulatorium from Thursday morning and talk with our workshop supervisors Sebastian Uribe.

Tools participants should bring: A pen and paper (will be provided if needed)

Intended audience: Anyone with an interest or career in making games who'd like to explore turning their life experiences into systems
